Andersen Products is now the only company offering Ethylene Oxide sterilisation cycle times as low as 3 hours. Aeration in the cabinet reduces residual EtO levels, so even a flexible endoscope can be in use again in 3½ hours. The EOGas4™ has been approved by the FDA for the sterilisation of endoscopes. The 30 °C EOGas4™ cycle successfully sterilises medicated stents, whilst preserving the biological activity of the drug coating

Our EOGas3™ cabinets are able to run up to 20 loads independently at any one time. 10-6 SAL sterilisation and aeration in the one free standing cabinet. The temperature parameters can be adjusted from 40 °C - 55 °C making it suitable for most devices.

Both systems are available for in-house or sterilisation at our premises in Essex!.

IN HOUSE

In house sterilisation

Sterilise your products without heat, moisture, or abrasive chemicals

Reduced Damage.
Products remain within your own control at all times, avoiding damage and loss that may occur in transit. Also, if you do damage a device, you know immediately and can plan accordingly.

Tracking & Tracing.
The assignment of devices to particular sets, and the tracking of loan instruments, is greatly facilitated if the device never leaves your premises.

Lower Copy Number.
For regularly used devices you will need multiple copies to allow for the time a device is away, if you send it to a contract steriliser. Sterilisation in house can allow you to re-use the device the same day.

Cheaper cycles.
 When you invest in a steriliser you not only save the cost of the contract cycle, you also save the cost of the transport to and from the contract sterilisation location.

Not quite ready to purchase a steriliser? Outsourcing can be the solution

Flexible capacity.
 You can send us your goods as often as you want, when you want. No schedule. Our small chambers mean your goods will never be sterilised in the same chamber as goods from another customer and you do not have to wait for full loads.

ISO 13485 certified.
 Contract sterilisation allows you immediate access to two ISO 13485 certified facilities. These quality systems can support the assembly of your CE marking dossier and FDA 510(k) submission.

Operational simplicity.
 Avoid the complexities of cabinet installation, quality management system updating and operator training. These are issues you may wish to avoid, for now, especially if your future plans are uncertain.

No capital expenditure.
 This technology will always cost considerably less than any other low temperature sterilisation technology, because of the elegance of the Andersen concept. However, even that cost is avoided with contract sterilisation.

Sterilisation of flexible endoscopes

Flexible endoscopes present special problems due to the long narrow lumens. EtO is uniquely capable of penetrating complex shapes and studies have shown that EtO will sterilise even the longest and narrowest lumens found in flexible endoscopes. EtO is the only re-sterilisation technology approved by major flexible endoscope manufacturers. In addition, additional aeration at 50˚C can reduce residual EtO levels so that the device is available for use on a patient in just 4½ hours.
